A certain number of completed projects are highlighted as it was already possible to provide detailed information on specific benefits brought by these projects. In time, SESAR Deployment Manager will provide such detailed information for every completed project.

Description

The activation and management of pre-defined airspace configurations is one of the most advanced solutions to allow flexibility to meet civil and military airspace users’ demands. Military and civil air navigation service providers, the Network Manager and airspace users collaboratively define specific configurations (in terms of airspace structure, ATC sectorisation and airspace reservations) to be applied within a dedicated geographic area and/or time period to satisfy civil and military requirements.

To support and assist this solution, the Network Manager is upgrading its systems and modify the operational procedures to allow timely and automatic exchange of information related to the pre-defined airspace configurations to all relevant stakeholders.

Thanks to an increased awareness of all stakeholders and the capability to better adapt to all users’ needs, NM system upgrades will enable: better adaptation of available capacity to traffic variations and to military reserved airspace; an increase in ATCO productivity; reduced routing for civil and military traffic across the European Network, ultimately saving time for all passengers and facilitating more efficient flight routes: inter-alia the project is expected to allow savings for around 40.000 tons of carbon emissions until 2030.
